Why choose us

Our Group Life products

We offer Group Life insurance products to suit all types of employer.

  • Registered Group Life

    Our Registered Group Life product is written under a trust and provides a tax-free lump sum up to the Lifetime Allowance (LTA), within HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) regulations for a registered occupational pension scheme.

    People insured under the policy can have different levels of benefit.

  • Excepted Group Life

    Excepted Group Life insurance provides tax-free benefits and is sometimes used for high earners. It allows for lump sum benefits to be paid outside of the Lifetime Allowance (LTA).

    All people insured under the policy must have the same level of benefit.

  • Simplicity Life

    Simplicity Life is a simple version of our Registered Group Life policy for employers who want to give a more basic level of life cover to their employees for the first time.

    The plan is for PAYE employees and written under our Registered Group Life Master Trust.

  • Spouse and Partner cover

    A policy is taken out by the employer to provide a lump sum benefit to an employee if their spouse or partner dies while insured.

    A Spouse and Partner's policy is typically a voluntary arrangement in association with a Unum Group Life policy for the same employees.
